About the Kicker CompR 43CWR82

Overbuilt? More like built just right

Kicker designed their CompR subs for people who love to hear strong bass in their music. The CompR 43CWR82 8” subwoofer comes equipped with a tough, polypropylene cone that stays rigid during intense play sessions so you hear accurate bass. A custom-designed back and top plate give the woofer plenty of room to travel, while the durable rubber surround helps to control cone movement during a heavy workout. This sub uses extensive venting in its heavy steel basket to shrug off heat, so you can count on reliable performance.

Say hello to system flexibility

This Kicker CompR sub will handle up to 300 watts RMS so make sure you have an amplifier that'll do it justice. Its dual 2-ohm voice coils give you more wiring options when setting up your system, and this versatile sub works well in sealed or ported enclosures.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 225 and 450 watts RMS at 1 or 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Features

Dual Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 2Ω voice coils, offering wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1Ω load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents a 4Ω load.

Sealed Enclosures: Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music. Kicker recommends sealed enclosures from 0.4 ft³ to 1.0 ft³.

Vented Enclosures: Vented (or ported) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. Kicker recommends ported enclosures in the following range:

  • Minimum Enclosure Volume: 0.8 ft³ with an 8" x 1.5" x 20-3/4" slot port
  • Maximum Enclosure Volume: 1.2 ft³ with an 8" x 2" x 19-1/8" slot port

Note: Although smaller than optimal, the prefabricated enclosures we list on the accessory page produce very good results.

Replacing my factory sub with one that has a little more power. Also it's the same exact size I have now so why not go with kicker. All their products are excellent. [ JOAQUIN  Jun 23, 2018 ]

get alerts on when package arrives. [ Reginal  Jun 03, 2018 ]
A
Because on a 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth with beats audio the rear factory sub is a dual 2ohm voice coil so this will replace the original sub and will sound better than the original paper cone woofer. [ Jeff  Apr 21, 2018 ]

Q
What way is better to wire a single dual voice coil sub parallel or series?
[ Nick  Oct 19, 2018 ]

A
Positive to positive Negative to negative To factory wires
[ Rick  Oct 22, 2018 ]
A
Depends on a lot of factors, mainly the impedance it can handle. Series would raise the impedance, generally being safer or more conservative
[ HANNAH L  Oct 22, 2018 ]
A
This depends on your Amplifiers rated output. Your impedance (ohms) will either be 1/2- parallel, or double - series of the rated ohms that the woofer is rated at. Parallel will be louder, if your Amp is rated for that impedance. Just don't throw components together, a properly matched system will always sound the best, and last for many years without being strained.
[ Sparky  Oct 22, 2018 ]
A
Depends on your amp. Parallel will halve the impedence of the coils. Two 8 ohm coils in parallel present a 4 ohm load to the amp. Two 8 ohm coils in series = 16 ohm load. Parallel is probably best, just make sure the load is not lower than your amp's comfort range to avoid amp damage.

i plan on installing 2 of these subs and need to know what size amplifier is needed to drive these subs?

I installed a single sub using the factory amp in a Chevy 2002 Tahoe, I've had no issues with the installation and the Factory installed equipment, hope this helps
[ Welton D  Sep 30, 2017 ]
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
[ Kenny  Sep 29, 2017 ]  Staff
A
I installed 2 of these subs in an f150 recently and I used a Rockford Fosgate R500 X1D and it works great. The amp is rated at 500 watts at 2 ohms but it actually puts out around 600.
